Spouse has a DUI


#1

My spouse was convicted of a DUI two years before we met, in April of 2014 (She just told me now).It has been almost two yeard before her conviction and I am up for a ts/sci clearance with a ssbi renewal next year. Will her having a DUI affect my chances of getting my clearance renewed this time around? She has been sober since with a clean driving record since the time of the incident.

Her DUI has no impact on your eligibility for a clearance.


#3

Even if it is a ts/sci clearance with a ssbi investigation?


#4

Thank you for your prompt reply btw.


#5

She is not being investigated, you are. If she is not currently involved in criminal activity minor past offenses do not have any bearing.


#6

I was told that I was to inform everything to my fso. I have a ts/sci clearance and am also up for a ssbi investigation. I was told that every action my spouse makes/takes has a direct impact on my security clearance.

It's not an issue. Relax.
